TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® began in the early 1980s with brothers Jon Sorber and Brig Sorber, and a ‘66 Ford pickup truck. Over time, Jon, Brig, their mom, Mary Ellen Sheets, and sister Melanie Bergeron, worked endlessly to grow the family business. They understood that you could build a successful business while taking care of the people you served along with your community. Today, the widely-respected company has more than 380 locations worldwide, 2,800 trucks on the road, 10,000 employees during peak season, and has performed more than 7.5 million moves. We are a company built on Core Values that permeate the entire franchise system.

Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what it takes to make a franchise thrive. We serve both home and business customers daily for their moves, and offer a range of services including packing and unpacking services, storage options, and the sale of moving supplies at franchise locations. These services contribute to customer satisfaction - and they provide additional revenue opportunities for your franchise.

Today, as the nation’s largest franchised local moving company, we’ve set our sights on continued growth and innovation, while remaining rooted to our core principle: exceeding customers’ expectations in quality and value – every time.

Franchisee Testimonial

After graduating from college with a degree in finance, Crain had plans to purchase the family dealership, but after receiving guidance and suggestions from his wife, Karen, he decided to pursue another route — business ownership. The car business was capital intensive and the return on investment wasn’t optimal.

Crain began looking into franchising, but no concepts truly appealed to him. Crain was introduced to the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchise through a friend. When he learned of the family-owned, Christian company and their core values, Crain sent in an application, went through the approval process, and moved to Lakeland, Fla., to open his first franchise business in 2007. Since opening his first location, business has grown from a two-truck operation to a 10-truck operation and has achieved impressive growth over the years. In 2014, he expanded his franchise portfolio to include a second location.

Crain has been recognized with the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Franchisee Significant Service Award, Volunteer of the Year, Kiwanis’ Kiwanian of the Year, and was also elected to the Board of the Lakeland Kiwanis Club.
